Multiple Intelligences

Today in 5M we completed a Multiple Intelligences survey.

This survey helped us to find out what areas we are ‘smart’ in.  It also was good to find a out a bit more about each other and our strengths. We realised that ‘smart’ doesn’t necessarily mean you are just good at writing or maths.

One of the great things about this activity is that it showed us that their are many ways we can learn new information. This can help us when we are struggling to understand a new topic at school and it is being taught with words (linguistic – word smart), we may like to ask the teacher to draw a picture to help us understand it better if we are Visual/Spatial (picture smart).

Here are the 8 multiple intelligences…

Kinaesthetic – Body Smart Linguistic – Word Smart
Logical – Number Smart Interpersonal – People Smart
Intrapersonal – Myself Smart Musical – Music Smart
Visual/Spatial – Picture Smart Naturalistic – Nature Smart

What kind of ‘smart’ are you?

Do you agree with the result? Are you surprised?

How could this help you at school?

    Dear MissMay,
    My smart is kinaesthetic

    I am not surprised that I got kinaesthetic because I’m good at sport and I enjoy it

    This could help me at school with inter school sport or outside playing a sport

    Dead Miss May,
    My top smart is people smart. I do agree with my result and I am a bit suppressed with it because i never knew that I had a good relationship with my friends. Well it could help me at school because I have a really good relationship with all my friends and thier won’t be any arguments.

    Dear Miss May,
    My top smart is body smart or kinaesthetic smart.
    I do agree with my result because I like doing sport and exercising a lot. I am not really suprised because I do a lot of sport and exercise out of school. This could help me at getting into team sports and representing the school at athletics and cross country.

    To Miss May,
    I took the test and my top intelligence was linguistic-word smart. I am a little bit surprised but not much because I think I am good with l writing. I think this could help me at school because then I know what I’m good at and I can help other people with it too. It was fun to take the test and now I know what my intelligence is!!
